I used to work at a video game store.
When customers were trying to decide which system to purchase, this is what I would tell them:
“Focus on the game library.”
I think the same can be said for smartphones and tablets. There are many apps that can be used on multiple devices–sometimes better and sometimes worse–but what can really separate the different OS’ are the exclusive apps. If you find that your favorite apps can only be found on a particular platform, that’s the direction you should probably go.
Take a look at how the number of apps compare from app store to app store:
Google+ is quickly becoming one of my favorite social networks and part of it is because of the ability to share photos with specific groups of people. Recently, I took photos at my daughters kindergarten graduation, but I didn’t want to post the photos publicly and I didn’t want to put them on my Dropbox. I decided to post them on Gooogle+ and share with all of the parents.
Here’s how I did it:
A lot of things have been said about how the new Pope Francis has done things in a different way. This video is another example of this.

A Feedly update to complete migration? I thought I was already migrated?
If you’re like me (have tons of feeds), you may have had a slight moment of panic as the thought of losing all your feeds swept over you.
Here’s what the Feedly message means:
Recently I’ve been talking with my friend about the process of doing what we love to do.
We didn’t share any secrets that haven’t already been shared before. Like people say, there’s nothing new under the sun. Something we made a point of though was that ‘talk’ points you down one direction and ‘action’ points you down another.
We talked about both, and I felt like sharing my synopsis with some added thoughts on the back end of course.
I feel like I should say too, that my friend and I are not all this and that. He’s a commercial and wedding photographer and I design stuff. We try to push past our own fears in order to see the end goal in clear sight.
So yeah, this first part is about fear…
VBS can be hairy and sometimes a little scary if your outreach was a success and you have more kids show-up than what you expected–a good problem I would say.
One thing that can really make VBS go smoother is a streamlined child check-in system. Not only will guests feel more comfortable and have confidence in your church’s ability to keep their children safe and accounted for, but starting VBS on the right foot is sure to make the rest of the VBS experience more satisfying.
Here’s a closer look at how your typical child check-in system works:
